Dividend Portfolio Update for September 2017

Wow, I can’t believe how fast September has come and gone. So much so that I’m a few days late with the September update!

The Hurricane season was in full force this month as big storms hit many parts of the world. My thoughts go out to everyone that was involved. The market continues to hit an all time high which has led to many financial bloggers to question whether or not to continue investing in an all-time high market.

My advice is simple. Invest in high quality dividend producing companies and you’ll end up doing alright in life. There’s always some stocks out there that are worth buying!


  • $301.18 in dividends
  • Added $1,000 to dividend portfolio

Beginner Dividend Portfolio


Account Deposits

As usual, I automatically pull out $200 per paycheck with automatic deposit and at the end of the month, I throw whatever is left into the account. This time it was $1,000 due to some unplanned dental bills that happened during the month!

$200 + $200 + $1,000 = $1,400

Stock Purchases

Not a very exciting month. But I did add to my position on GE after it continues to fall..

  • 15 shares of GE@ $24.10
    I continue to just average down on GE as it keeps getting hit. There’s a good chance I’ll let this go in the future. This adds +$14.40 to my annual income.

Annual Income = +$14.40

Stock Sells



It was a great month for the dividend portfolio. Next month looks to be another bill heavy month so I’ll have to pinch some pennies to keep adding money into my portfolio!


Thanks for reading!
